The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG
This light-textured formula contains an extremely high 5% concentration of caffeine, supplemented with highly-purified green tea extract. Independent studies have shown that topical use of caffeine can help reduce the look of puffiness and dark circles in the eye contour. Additional studies have shown that caffeine can also reduce the appearance of cellulite.

2. Fat deposits under the eye contour can create permanent puffiness in this area. This type of deposit cannot be improved with topical skincare, including this formula.
3. Supplied in UV-protective packaging as EGCG is sensitive to light.
